A well-known North American car manufacturer
awarded MANN+HUMMEL a contract for the
supply of battery frames. “This contract is very
important for us and it makes us proud that our
customer has placed their trust in us”, says
Manfred Wolf, head of the automobile and indus-
try division. MANN+HUMMEL is already active in
the field of electric mobility and has for example
supplied battery frames for the Opel Ampera and
GM Volt. MANN+HUMMEL invests considerably
into research and development; a major portion
of research funds is used for concepts, products
and technologies for alternatively powered vehi-
cles. The company is currently working on more
than ten research projects in the area of e-mo-
bility. In addition to battery and plug-in hybrid
technology, fuel cell technology has also moved
into focus. MANN+HUMMEL has transferred its
expertise in filtration and separation technology
to alternative drive systems and has developed
products for these in cooperation with its part-
ners in Europe, Asia and America. Examples are
the cathode air filter and the ion exchange filter
which are used in fuel cell-powered vehicles and
combined heat and power plants.
With more than 900 researchers and developers
worldwide, an average annual growth of a full
nine per cent and more than 15 filter elements
produced each second, MANN+HUMMEL looks
back on more than seven decades in the filtra-
tion business. Quality, service and innovation
has made the long-standing company a
sought-after development partner and series
supplier of the international automobile and me-
chanical engineering industries.
